#Roads & Transport
NSW Minister for Transport

After years of pressure the Rozelle Public School P&C finally convinced Transport for NSW to carry out a safety audit of the junction between Darling St and Victoria Road in Rozelle. As most residents will already be aware the pedestrian crossings are used by hundreds of school age children during heavy periods of traffic. The report was published in September 2020 and as expected the results were damning. The auditors called out more than ten separate safety issues with the junction, two of which were deemed INTOLERABLE and that “There is risk of pedestrian crashes may occur resulting in potential FATALITY”. Naturally the community expected the NSW government to immediately implement safety measures.

Unbelievably, OVER TWO YEARS LATER, and despite support from the local state MP, not only have no measures been put in place but there has not even been a commitment to improve safety at any point in the future.

Please join us in calling for the state government to improve safety by:

1. Expanding the area of the scheduled Rozelle Public School Speed Safety Zone to incorporate the two intersections of Victoria Road / Darling Street and Victoria Road / Wellington Street.

2. Changing the light filtering pattern to remove competition between pedestrians and drivers turning left onto Victoria Road.

3. Relocating the Red-Light Speed Safety Camera from the intersection of Victoria Road and Evans Street to the intersection of Victoria Road and Darling Street.

4. Introducing barriers or bollards as appropriate on corner kerbs of the intersection of Victoria Road and Darling Street.
